Why the S in ESG matters – now more than ever
Why the S in ESG matters – now more than ever


“The more that a company can link its purpose and strategy to delivering value to stakeholders – customers, employees, and communities – the more it will produce long-term, durable profits for shareholders.”
– 2021 letter to CEOs, BlackRock

Join us this Wednesday as Catherine Smith McKiernan explains why the “social” in the ESG agenda is now a business imperative and not a nice-to-have. She will outline:

  • The key issues and trends in relation to DEI, employment, and modern slavery
  • What the practical impacts on businesses are
  • How you can measure change and visualise what the good look like


Catherine Smith McKiernan is an experienced people and organisational consultant and is currently serving as the Group HR Director for EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum while balancing a busy freelance portfolio. Catherine brings unique perspectives on organisational
development and change gained from her experience across the public, private and not for profit sectors. Having built a career around enabling people to embrace change and transformation she is leader who values diversity, collaboration, innovation and trust.
